Hey, my goal is to get promoted at this cycle. What are the gaps I need to fill to get there.

If you want, you can come into that with a filled out behaviors/performance expectations paper and map out where you’re playing at that next level already.

Ask if you can put time on his/her calendar to talk about your objectives/priorities for the year. Then once you get time start by saying you think you’ve done xyz and want to think about next steps. Ask for feedback/thoughts

“Where do you think I am in my career progression?” “How do I compare to my peers in promotion readiness?” “I’d like to start thinking about next steps in my career — where do you think I am?” “I feel that, in many ways, I’m operating at the next level. I am currently working on XYZ. What gaps do you see?"

Can anyone give me some advice about to switch from assurance to FDD please!

I am having doubts in my mind regarding a job offer. I have been working for more than 4 years in Accenture and now I am being promoted to analyst level in September. With market correction and promotion, I might get somewhere around 30% increment. However, wipro has given me an offer with around 55% hike on my current salary but on senior associate level only. Should I take that offer or stay at Accenture only?

Has anyone made the jump from in-house legal over to the business side? How did the transition go? Would you do over it again?

Only way for me to be promoted and stay in safety is to jump to the business side but I’m hesitant to give up doing legal work.

What is a reasonable length of time to stay at a firm before switching? Obviously, this varies based on circumstances, class year, work history, etc., which is understandable, but is there a rule of thumb for length of time that doesn’t raise red flags on a resume? I know in some industries a year is reasonable, but I feel like in the legal field, it’s longer. General thoughts on this? Thanks!
